Holiday Rental House
We offer comfort and seclusion in self-catering accommodation in an historic house in Akureyri, nestled on Eyjafjörður in north Iceland. Lækjargata 4 sits in the beautiful old town, ideally situated to allow you to explore the wonders of the north of Iceland, and to immerse yourself in the unique experience of your holiday in Iceland. The magic of north Iceland will touch your soul, enrich your smile, and warm your being. From the active landscape of living and breathing geology to the authenticity of the Icelandic traditions; from the natural wonders that soak through your skin and glisten in your eyes, to the people, their culture, their music; from the crystal clear mountain air that cleanses your lungs, to the rich history of survival and society kept alive by the wonder of the Sagas...We offer comfort and seclusion in self-catering accommodation in an historic house in Akureyri, nestled on Eyjafjörður in north Iceland.

Staying at Lækjargata 4 will give you the opportunity to experience a house which has seen 150 years of history in Akureyri. The house is protected as one of the oldest timber houses in the town, and has touched the lives of many local families. That history and warmth is a real part of the joy of staying here. In recent years the house has been restored to provide uniquely comfortable and luxurious self-catering accommodation. 4 bedrooms, sleeping 7 (+2) Shower room Bathroom with tub Fully equipped kitchen Dining table to seat 10 2 sitting rooms Television, free wifi internet Outdoor gas grill More
